By: Cherie Anderson With the gray-to-whitewashed days we have been experiencing this winter; it’s easy to take a mental escape and dream of warmer, prettier days to come. While fantasizing about budding trees, singing birds, greening grass and so forth, take some time to check out this year’s Spring Color Report by Pantone. There are beautiful soft pastels balanced by vibrant hues of orange, purple and blue. It’s interesting to see how the different industries, from cosmetics to furniture, are interpreting these colors to create versatile stylized pops of color on pieces that can easily be added to existing palettes. As you peruse the Pantone color board take a moment to vote and share with us what hue speaks to you this season. The Celosia Orange has my vote for its soft, warm shade that could easily be used to freshen up an out-of-date neutral palette or it can be the beacon in the center of a colorful arrangement.
